No, nobody donated it to me.

I need Arcanum.exe from a fresh install of the GOG version. Please upload it somewhere (like here), if you have time.

GOG probably got clean PE files from the publisher.
I doubt very much that they went the Ubisoft way...

Turns out, that's what they did actually. At first I was surprised that the high resolution patch works with the "DRM free" version, because it is dependent on the original offsets, so that means the PE file wasn't recompiled. And yeah, it IS a scene crack.

It's KeopS/Fairlight crack with the sceners info removed from the header. A perfect match otherwise. Feel free to compare the files yourself.

I wonder if this has drama potential?

"Hey, we want our games to be DRM free but this one has tricky copy protection, let's hire some professional DRM removers."
"Alright, I'll check for a fitting company."
*one hour later*
"Hey look what I found! A nice list of companies that do professional DRM removal! Reloaded, Razor1911, Skidrow..."
"Hey sounds cool, they all seem to have a good reputation, too! Yes, I think we should hire one of those!"

How could they?!

I bet my ass that they got their files from publishers.
Get a life Droog, you sound like Skyway's alt FFS.

Also: bookmarked this thread in "Huge Drama potential" subcategory.

The next logical step is that a cracker group puts malware in their crack, waits for this to happen, and then fucks everybody.

Sweet JEBUS!

1.0.7.4 crack nfo says "cd check" as protection. I doubt it. Does patch 1.0.7.4 remove Securom 3/4? If not than chances are, its a crack. Thx Drog =)

The only diff between them. Ofcourse it could be that the clean arcanum.exe looks like an unpacked Securom protected file but that is very improbable. Securom (even 3 or 4) is not that simple. Though I dont know what it does exactly.

Drog, do you know where the cd checks are? I dont wanna search for them.
Is this one: .text:005937E2 ?
